two people are dead after a chain reaction crash involving over a hundred vehicles. it shut down the highway for hours, and it happened so fast that some drivers said that they had absolutely no time to react. >> there were three cars in front of me, and i saw it about to happen, and sure enough, um, the first car that stopped, the second car tried to avoid hitting it but just tagged it, you know, on the bummerper, andi literally was able to stop without hitting anyone. >> seeing this happen around you, what was going through your mind? >> get the hell out of the way, you know? i was thinking, like, people, you know, pay attention. just pay attention to what the hell you're doing. >> are i was in the back here, and i just stopped in time my car before i hit the pile-up, and the man in back of me, he stopped too. that's why i didn't get any damage. rick: what a scary story.
